Hongdae is located in the area of Hongik University (a well known learning centre for art) this entire area has been turned into a Shopping Street that seems to never sleep. The different shops open from noon until late at night, but the peak times are on weekends. On Saturday evenings the playground in front of the University hosts a flea market, which they call “Free Market”. Students come here to show their products, draw, play music and sing. Moreover, this area is known for cute cafes that have a variety of themes. Some open for 24 hours a day. This is also a party area, with clubs, bars, and dozens of pubs with long queues.
